“They’ve been fighting non-stop over the past year,” says the source.
Supposedly one of the main issues that allegedly challenged the relationship is that Grace, 48, wanted to have children. Of course Usher, 39, already has two children with ex-wife Tameka Foster: 9-year-old Naviyd and 10-year-old Usher. Meanwhile, Grace has two teenage kids: a son and a daughter.
Says the source: ” Grace REALLY wanted to have kids and Usher wasn’t necessarily open to the idea.”
Remember Grace is 48, so having children naturally wasn’t an option.
“Grace wanted to have a surrogate, but Usher was only willing to adopt. He didn’t want a surrogate at all. Ultimately, he was the deciding factor of them not having a kid together.”
And yes, Ursh’s mess with the herpes allegations and lawsuits didn’t help their marriage either.
” It put a serious strain on them. The headlines and accusations were brutal. And it was really tough on them. They were fighting about it non-stop.”
As we reported earlier, the couple announced their separation via statement:
“After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple. We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”
By the way, Grace reacted to Usher’s herpes accusers back in November, telling TMZ that she and her husband are “living their lives.”
They were still together as of December, but they’ve been keeping a low profile since then.
Far as we know … no divorce docs have been filed yet, but seems like it’s just a matter of time.
